Support the College of Arts & Sciences on #MaryWashDay!

The College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) is the heart and soul of UMW. Our 19 academic departments and 200+ faculty offer over 30 cutting-edge majors that incorporate contemporary issues such as diversity, digital fluency, service, and social justice.

 

We need your help to remain competitive in providing high-impact education for our students. Such practices extend the education beyond the walls of the classroom – check out what’s happening here. But these activities involve extra time, commitment, and expense if they are to succeed, which is why we need your help. Students who engage in high-impact learning programs are more satisfied with their education and graduate at higher rates than students who did not have such experiences. Isn’t that worth doing for as many students as possible?

 

Achieving the best return on our high-impact practices means we need to provide more scholarships, better faculty support, and more options for internships, undergraduate research, and service-learning. Your gift will help us achieve those goals.

 

If you wish to designate your gift to an academic department, your gift will support programs in that department. A gift designated to the College of Arts and Sciences will support expanded opportunities for all of our students. 

 

This year, we are excited to raise money for students who wish to pursue internship opportunities that are not paid. A gift designated to the Dean's Internship Grants will support these students. Such experiences are quite popular and provide important insights into how a student’s UMW experience helps them to transition from the classroom to the workplace. Our goal is to provide access to all students who want to participate. Small grants, $500 or so, often make a huge difference by providing money for train tickets or meals necessary to be able to participate in an unpaid internship. The CAS Advisory board is so passionate about providing these grants, they are matching all donations to this grant program dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000!
